Automatic Prescription Dispensing

Name the RobotSay hello to "Wardie".

The latest technology is taking Simpson's Pharmasave back to the practice of pharmacists having time for personalized service and counseling. Our pharmacy staff of is now using the Compact Robotic System CRS 150, aka "Wardie". Wardie has many safety features that ensure accurate medication dispensing.

Wardie performs the time-consuming and tedious tasks of counting pills, filling vials, and labeling prescriptions—using advanced robotic technology. With ScriptPro automation, pharmacists have more time to answer questions and counsel their customers.

How does Wardie work?

Once a prescription is entered into the pharmacy computer system, the robotic arm determines the correct size vial, and then finds the specified drug. Using barcode scanning, it verifies the location of the drug. The robotic arm holds the vial and counts the pills as they are automatically dropped into the vial. The arm then places the vial on a short conveyer belt and the patient label is applied, complete with medication warning labels.

Barcode scanning is used throughout the system to ensure that the correct drug is given to the patient. The pharmacist makes the final check for accuracy, comparing the pills in the vial with a computer screen image of the drug.

Our pharmacists are pleased to have Wardie. He never calls in sick or takes a vacation, or retires! Wardie counts and fills up to 150 prescriptions per hour, so customers get their medications promptly, even during peak pharmacy hours.

With Wardie working tirelessly and effortlessly, we look forward to spending more time with you!
